Causes of hypoglycemia depend on age; neonatal causes are transient neonatal hypoglycemia, Prematurity, intrauterine growth retardation, perinatal asphyxia, sepsis, congenital hypopituitarism, beta sympathomimetic drugs, congenital hyperinsulinism, infant of a diabetic mother, Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome and inborn errors of carbohydrate metabolism. Causes of adult hypoglycemia are: insulin or insulin secretagogue drugs, alcohol, hepatic failure, renal failure, cardiac failure, sepsis, non-islet cell pancreatic tumors, insulinoma, reactive hypoglycemia, post gastric bypass hypoglycemia, and autoimmunee hypoglycemia.
